Pros: 1) Awesome cas latency unoverclocker 3000 @ 14! with Dimm 1.34V
2) I was able to push them considerably higher with very little Dimm V
3) Once the XMP profile was on all you have to do bump up Dimm, VRM and VCSSA (I was able to get 1.76VRM at auto VCSSA 1.16 however recommend closer 1.2V) I am running at 1.78 and 1.185V respectively (That was before I overclocked the CPU)
4) Intelburn was ran at max memory 64gb at maximum for 10 times ~ 8.5hours passed no problem while I played foobar2000 for music in asio mode
5) Nice solid and heavy heatsinks
Cons: There wasnt any cons - except maybe the color scheme of red and black
Other Thoughts: firstname.lastname@example.org (Tel: 1-9095986860) if you have any issue getting them going. The email support was like 1hour anytime in the past.
Corsair and Gskill are my 'go to' memory when I build hard core systems for myself
Heck Gskill even replaced a memory module that was physically damage by the user, in my mind Gskill rocks.
Pros: DDR4 2666
ran at 15-17-17-35 @ 2666 1.2v
15-17-17-37 @ 2800 1.35V
both settings tested with 10 runs of Intelburn 2.54 at 31000+mb and overnight with Prime 64 v277
Cons: You do not get the free corsair fans with this kit, bummer.
Other Thoughts: Tested on Asus Rampage V
I highly recommend this series of ram. Dominator Ram is simply one of the best and highest quality out there. Corsair customer service has always been excellent when I have had to RMA in the past. Corsair usually has an express option to get you up and going with minimal down time.
I debated between the Dominator 2666 cas15 and Vengeance 3000 cas16 with dual fans, I just could not turn away from the reliability I have had with all my Dominator modules. Sure they are bit pricy however I know I can count of them for years to come.
Pros: 1)Massive space for a Massive CPU cooler. Using a Asrock z77Pro-M with a Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E on a I7 3770k.
2) Nice slick setup - enabling the creation of a 'Black Box that Rocks'
3) I went with the upgrade for the top fan SILVERSTONE Air Penetrator AP182 180mm Case Fan - extra 170cfm of air (it is finger biter of a fan) +recommend+
4) Plenty of space for long graphic card
5) Multiple way to place your PSU to maximize your cable length. Did not seem to affect the PSU temp, mainly because of the AP182 air flow
6) Nice to see a case where you dont need to buy tiny cpu coolers.
7) You can use the space along the edge on the 180mm to hide cable routes.
8) The top fan even allows a slot for air cooling into the HD bays.
Cons: Now these are more FYIs and issues
1) The Slim CD/DVD/Bluray rom HAS to be a SLOT load.
2) I had to tear out the dust catch on the CD rom slot . Was getting caught in the loader
3) I wish they would had screw slots for inside the case for extra drives. I am using RAID 5 (4 HDs) with SSD for a boost.
4) You have to be careful on the size of PSU / I was using a SeaSonic M12D SS-850 150mm L however I needed more space so I switched a Enermax Liberty 140mm Length (So go with 150mm max unless you have extremely flexable cable or 140mm for extra space to tuck the extra cables into the PSU bay.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this case to anyone that want to OC a m-atx board. Overall it is solid however they do use plastic more often than in other Sugo cases I have owned.
-As I stated you need to buy a slot loader Rom (no buttons for eject are allowed)
-As I stated careful about PSU size <150mm
-Buy a upgraded fan Silverstone 180mm AP182
-Buy a 3way 3pin fan cable for the 3 fans that go on the GPU cover.
-If you are looking to have 5 HDs, you can support 2 3.5HDs and 2 2.5SSDs. You will need to mount the extra HD(s) in the case under the PSU. I punched a couple holes in the front to mount a 2HD bay device.
